I'm not complaining, but wow that looks unintuitive.

I'll look into it. I'll have to figure out if this will impact the
other 100 or so domains on this box.
Thanks for the pointer.

I was going to reply in the middle of the rt thread above, but in
reading about it I didn't think it fit my problem. But I also hadn't
found that particular thread. I can see now that it's intended to
exactly solve the problem I'm having.
As I see it, a more sendmailish solution would be to use a little
sendmail-fu and make it so that sendmail checks for local user at smtp
time, but delivers to cyrus at deliver time. I don't have such fu, but
I see now as a good enough time to start studying up on it as well as
exploring the above option.
I've visited conferences where the wireless LAN was deemed "secure" by
the organisation because they had outlawed sniffers. --Neils Bakker
